It’s easy to fall back on old stand-bys like fruit, ice cream and jello but I’m learning to bake cakes and a few other ideas have come my way.
I’ve found some excellent cake mixes and that’s the only really good way I’ve found to bake a white cake.
Probably the most versatile ideas use meringues – mini kisses, cookies, nests, even pie shells! Broken pieces are a good last minute addition to trifle-like dishes. They’re quick to make. They turn out best if you forget about them and leave in the oven overnight. although that is only a good thing to do IF you remember to turn the oven OFF first!
